A follower posted this picture on the Lost Monongahela Facebook page however she didn’t know the names of anybody in the picture.
I found the following article published in the October 5, 1912 edition of the Monongahela Republican that gives the last names of eleven of them:
The twelve names listed in the article are Harold Wickerham, R. Wickerham, Kline, Gramley, Davison, Baderschneider, Borland, (Phil?) Scott, Albright, Carmack and Coatsworth. Other articles about the 2012 team also mention Guskea, Boyd and Gramley. I wonder if any descendants of the listed players follow Lost Monongahela. Let me know if you are able to match any of the names with faces in the photo.
What the heck is that in the background?
**UPDATE** Additional info (from the Facebook Page “Growing Up In New Eagle” regarding a few of the players:
